When we set out to build Teal, we wanted to help level the playing field for job seekers—to give consumers access to the tools and resources they need to grow their careers on their own terms.
To date, our purpose-built tools have successfully supported more than 110,000 job seekers through their search process: sourcing and saving roles; identifying key skills; tracking job applications, companies of interest, and networking contacts; and building tailored resumes.
In 2023, we want to take that support a step further and empower job seekers to maximize their compensation and negotiate their salary with confidence—which is why we’re excited to announce that Teal has acquired Riva, a platform offering negotiation coaching and resources for job seekers.
Riva’s mission is fundamentally aligned with ours: to level the playing field for job seekers by giving people of all backgrounds the tools and resources they need to ask for more from their employers—and get it. Since 2018, they’ve helped more than 5,000 people successfully negotiate for the compensation and opportunities they deserve.
Purchasing Riva allows us to integrate Harvard-backed negotiation expertise and tried and tested best practices into our existing career resources, giving job seekers the best possible chance of success in today's competitive job market. We’re thankful to Riva CEO Ben Cook and co-founders and advisors David Lax and Stephanie Young for their hard work launching and growing Riva these past few years, and we look forward to building upon that strong foundation to create an even more robust resource for job seekers.
Though we’ll be incorporating Riva’s IP, technology and methodologies directly into Teal’s site and platform, we won’t be offering negotiation coaching services directly. For that, we highly recommend Rora or Levels.FYI.
